  • The Army-Navy Screen Magazine 21: the entire newsreel

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons.   I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1, Part 1, high school students work part-time at the Lockheed and Douglas aircraft plants in Los Angeles. Part 2, Pvt. Snafu scoffs at education, but later learns that brawn is not enough in battle. Part 3, a combat cameraman explains how footage of the Tarawa invasion was taken. (Reel 2) Chaplains hold religious services aboard ships in a convoy. Invasion barges are beached as naval guns fire. Flamethrowers are used to rout Japanese from a blockhouse. Wounded are evacuated by Higgins boats. Prisoners surrender and bulldozers are used to clear an airstrip."

As always, any error or typo is mine and if you enjoy my uploads or if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice and/or itself. Thanks. :)
